Crystal oscillator features -165 dBc/Hz at 1KHz phase noise

August 28, 2012 // By Julien Happich
The LNO 100 is a low noise oven controlled crystal oscillator available in different formats from 51 x 51 x 25 mm down to 25 x 25 x 12 mm, specially designed to meet the request of the most demanding phase noise applications in the instrumentation and defence industries.

The LNO 100 at 100 MHz can be provided with a guaranteed phase noise level of up to -165 dBc/Hz at 1 kHz and a G-sensitivity of up to 0.5 ppb/G (Gamma). It operates at frequency of 80 to 125 MHz from a 12 V supply voltage and features a frequency stability in temperature of ± 0.1 ppm. Ageing stability is from ± 2 ppm over 10 years.
